World War 1 Simulation

Ottoman Empire, 1913:

Our Alliance with Germany and Austria-Hungary has gone good so far. We have taken Bulgaria already. Our alliance so far is strong. We hope that it continues throughout the war. As long as we are allied, we have a strong chance of finishing everyone’s objectives at once. Let’s see how this plays out.

Ottoman Empire, 1914:

We declared war in a part of Russia and lost, with the help of Germany, we have gained back Crimea. We haven’t done a whole lot yet but are planning to take Romania. We still need to talk to Germany about it, but we are hoping to get there and take it back. We have moved troops in and see how this plays out with us. We need luck on our side and hope to gain what we can, if possible. The bad news, Russia, Serbia, Greece, Montenegro and Romania, are threaten me to go and not mobilize my armies with Germany and Austria-Hungary to defeat them, if I keep a secret alliance with them, they would not attack me. I talked to Germany about it, and I showed them they can trust me. We have came up with several ideas, but the main one is that we would keep alliances and I would help them to make those countries go weaker. I need to start thinking how to get Romania and Greece back. I’m starting to be the bad guy, but, I would do anything to keep my empire safe.

Ottoman Empire, 1915:

This year has been really difficult to not mobilize my troops against Russia, Serbia, Greece, Montenegro and Romania, but I know I can do this and keep myself “neutral” more time. I’ve been passing around the information from Russia to Germany; Russia is sending 4000 troops to R1, Though, they are getting weaker, just how we wanted this to be. Today we, the Central powers, got Serbia and Romania and tried to get Montenegro. Montenegro is getting weak, next year would be the perfect time to attack them and take over it. Greece is our next goal. I’m getting ready to break my secret alliance with Greece and Russia.

Ottoman Empire, 1916:

Russia attacked me, of course I was waiting for that to happen, I won, though. Their army is really weak. Greece and Montenegro? We got them back. All my objectives are completed, but to end up this keeping my alliance strong with Germany. I’ll help them if they need to attack and to complete their objectives.

Ottoman Empire, 1917:

This battle is getting personal. I attacked Italy to help Germany and get my land protected. They were mad. Italy is intelligent, sarcastic and a good strategist. I need to be careful with her. We are planning to attack Italy tomorrow, she said she would surrender but I do not trust her in any way. United States wants me to ally with them, they want to get the Dardanelles Straight. I do not know what am I going to do. Although I’ve been helping Germany, they have been thinking I want to betray them, I need to get their trust back. Let’s hope this war ends soon, I have nothing else to fight for. At the end of the day, it’ll be worth it, Ottoman Empire would end as strong as I wish. The Central Powers would be victorious.

Ottoman Empire, 1918:

The war has ended. Though Germany lost part of France and Belgium, we kept our territory and we completed our objectives. I knew Italy and United States wanted to attack me, so I followed Austria’s and Germany’s advice of sending my troops over. It was a tough war, but the Central Powers were victorious, as we planned.

World War 1 Simulation

Germany 1 1913

Before the start of the war, I have identified the most significant threat to be Great Britain and the United States. The US is so far away and so far removed that they are not a major threat at the start, but could become one the longer the war goes on. My starting plan is to ally with Italy and use them to attack France through Italy, by using a distraction force to hold their forces in the North near Paris and to bring reinforcement troops towards Paris to defend it. I will then go in through the South to take all of mainland France. After that I plan on using the Ottoman Empire and Austria-Hungary to attack and destroy Russia.


Germany 1 1914

Major Event: German Navy attacked Russian Navy in Baltic Sea – German Victory

Major Event: Italy destroyed by Austria-Hungary, helped by France

Major Event: Belgium taken over by Germany

So far we have successfully attacked the Russian Northern Navy and destroyed them. We have mobilized and gained 3,800 troops in our central territory. Our plan is to move a portion of our troops West (roughly 700) to attack Paris through the Ardennes Forest to distract and tie down French forces. We will also send 1,200 troops South through Austria-Hungary and Italy to attack France from the South. My remaining troops will be split among G1 and G3 to defend, fortify, and prepare for my invasion of Russia alongside the Ottoman Empire and Austria-Hungary. We have convinced Austria-Hungary to attack and destroy Italy, which is good for us, as Italy would have eventually turned on us, best to take them out early and not have to worry about them once they mobilize. I also took Belgium, which secures my path to France, but I am worried about  England crossing the channel behind me and taking G1 while I am in France killing them. I will have to deal with them somehow, but I am not sure how at this point. Russia has a lot of troops, but I think if I dedicate 1000+ troops to the Russian front, I will be able to take them. Their troops are very bad, so I should be able to, with the Ottoman’s help, take the whole of Russia from the West and South.


Germany 1 1915

Major Event: Germany took F1 – France/GB took back

After my failed excursion into France, I am planning on saying “screw France and GB” and focusing on a defensive war against them and focus my resources on Russia for the moment. Once I destroy Russia and send them into a Civil war, I will focus on France and Great Britain again. They are both weak, and cannot afford an attack on the German Fatherland in their current states. I have weakened them greatly, so I will not press them, but rather move troops and prepare for a second invasion when I have many more troops and can afford to risk the movement into France again.


Germany 1 1916

Major Event: Russian Civil War – out of game

Major Event: Serbia taken over by Austria-Hungary

Major Event: Romania taken over by Germany

Major Event: Greece taken over by Ottoman Empire

I am going to start massing troops along my Western front in an effort to try one last push towards Paris and the prospect of taking France out of the game. The U.S. will be entering the war soon, so I should start preparing for their arrival, but they don’t have enough ships of their own to bring all of their troops over at once, so we have a little bit of time. Overall, my thinking is that I will play defensive until I have enough troops to take France by force and have the Austrian-Hungarians take France from the south. I will also send a few hundred troops through the Ardennes to provoke them and weaken them before my main assault on their capital.


Germany 1 1917

My plan for 1918 is to just play defensive, I’m pretty sure it is France’s objective to take my capital square, so I will deny them that. I refuse to throw away all of my troops in the last round just to try to take France for nothing. I am very confident in my troops’ defensive abilities to protect my lands and to kill as many French, American, and British soldiers that they throw at me.


Germany 1 1918

Major Event: Portuguese/British defended French North Africa from the Ottomans and Austrian-Hungarians

Major Event: Austria-Hungary took Southern France with no conflict.

Major Event: 10,000+ Allied Army attacked G1 – attack failed, all killed

Major Event: France took G2 – no German troops able to defend

If the war is to continue, Germany would eventually be defeated by pure numbers of Americans, British, and French soldiers. We will continue to play a defensive game against them and make them pay for any incursion into German, Austrian-Hungarian, or Ottoman Empire regions. They will lost MILLIONS of men, and hopefully that will destroy their will to fight and we can hold on until they are tired of sending their men into the slaughter house to be killed by the Central Powers.  They may have taken part of Germany at the very last second, but we have thousands of Austrian-Hungarians ready to kill Paris, and the troops they DO have in Germany isn’t enough to take Berlin or Austria-Hungary’s capital square. After we would have been reinforced, we would have pushed into Paris, taken out the Allied Army in Germany through our remained veterans from the battle of G1 and the remobilized Austrian-Hungarians, and then proceeded to secure mainland Europe from the very little British troops that would have mobilized and the few American troops they would have been able to bring overseas to try another invasion. After all of this, Germany would have won, as we had 1,000s of troops still, even AFTER losing many in the battle for G1. France had only a few hundred left, as with the U.S, and Great Britain had 0 troops left besides roughly 100 left in Africa, but they would have been swept away by the approaching Ottomans from O1 and O2.

Result of the war: Central Alliance Victory – we killed too many Allied troops for them to be able to launch any more effective counter attacks in any sort of quick fashion.

WWI Simulation Journal: France 2

World War I Simulation

France 2 1913

During this time of crisis I am the president of France and I will do whatever I need to keep my country safe and do my objectives. I  will keep control of my original territory, gain more land, stay loyal to my alliances, and make new alliances. During first year I plan to make alliances and talk to the Allied Powers to get a game plan. I want to wait a little bit, maybe two or three years, to regain Alsace & Lorraine from Germany. That way I can help my allies fight against the Central Powers break down Germany, and then go in and fight for it. My soldiers are set and ready to go for moving or going into war. My strategy is to help my allies and stay loyal. I don’t want to make a big target on my back and make other countries to come at me and try to take me over. I want to mobilize right away, because that way I have all of my men standing ready for anything that may happen. I’m ready to protect my people and land and bring home a big W for the Allies!

France 2 1914

It’s the start of the war and you can feel the tension around. Right away my allies of Great Britain, Russia, and I rush away from the group to make a plan and get on the same page. We all agree Germany is the number one target, and we need to close them so we can defeat them right away. I made an open alliance with Montenegro and secretly made one with Italy. It’s good to know that I have other countries and soldiers behind me, just in case I’m in need of some help. Germany declared war on my good buddy Belgium, and I rushed up there with 1,000 troops and Great Britain came to her aid as well. This gave us 1,981 plus what Belgium had against 2,000 German troops. We fought hard and unfortunately we lost. I’m pretty sure that I was so nerve I almost had an anxiety attack. This war is going to be hard and I need to keep my head in the game.

France 2 1915

Central Powers are at it again, attacking the Allied Powers and not giving in until they have it all. I had to sit there and watch as they attacked Serbia twice in a row, the first time Allied Powers were victorious but the second time couldn’t fight back against Central Powers. They tried to take Italy but I was quick to send help and we were victorious. Then they turned their eyes on me, my stomach was twist and my palms were sweating. I felt the beads of sweat falling off my face, I looked around my army getting ready for war and I prayed for a miracle. Great Britain and Italy came to my aid and luckily the first time we won. But they came at us a second time and we were not as lucky. They took over F1 and now I have to take it back. I only 615 troops left, but I need to keep punishing and fighting. I need to win back F1, protect my land, and take over Alsace & Lorraine. My plan of attack for next year is take back F1 and slam into Alsace & Lorraine. I need my plans and my allies’ plan to work next year or else we are done for.

France 2 1916

No words can expressed how stressed out I am about this war. My army and my allies’ army are getting tired and we are losing a lot of soldiers with each war that is declared. The Central Powers is being lead by one Head Master, which is the Leader of Germany, and the rest are just puppets on his string. Unlike Central Powers, we are all making plans and doing what’s best for us and each other. I also think that is our downfall, with each of us making plans and doing what we need none of us know what’s going on. We need to communicate a whole lot better. All of us are sitting on the edge of seats, waiting for Central Powers’ next move and trying to figure out what they are doing next. But none of us expected Germany to declared war on Belgium, but yet they did. In a blink of an eye 2,000 German troops were headed straight for Belgium and Allies needed to think fast. Right away Great Britain moved 981 and I moved 1,000 troops. We all send a little pray, or at least I did, but unfortunately it didn’t help. It was another Central Power and another land lost by us. I need to help reinforce land so I sent 379 troops to Great Britain. That concludes another crappy year for the Allied Powers.

France 2 1917

I wish I could say 1917 was the year everything turned around for the Allied Powers and we started kicking butt and taking land, but it wasn’t. Actually it was far from it. The year started off with Germany attacking me in F3, British was quick to my side with 552 but I only had 382 to fight with. We fought hard and unfortunately was over powered by the Central Powers. I lost another piece of land to the Central Power and I couldn’t help but feel ticked off. My head was about to explode  from the all the anger in my body. I helped move British troops to Belgium, and then went to get revenge. I declared war on F3, which is German territory, I was running on pure luck so I used poison gas and unfortunately lost. At that moment in the war I couldn’t help but let a tear fall down my face. I felt so defeated I just wanted to throw up a white flag and give up. My allies came together and discussed our plan, the war would only last one more year and we needed a game plan. The United States is coming over and can start helping us. I’m just going to do everything i can do to help my allies out and start winning!

France 1918

It’s the last year of the war AND WE FINALLY GOT SOMEWHERE! With all the happiness in my body, I’m so glad to tell you that the US came in and we got F3 back from the Central Powers! My territory is turning back to orange and man oh man I’m so excited! Germany tried to get back F3 by attacking me but that was a no go. I only had 83 troops to defend but France, Britain, Portugal, Italy, and America all came to help me and we stopped that plan right away and defeated them. Now that the war is done I can sit back and reflect about what happened and what I could of done better. I think that I should of taken advantage of the fact that F3 and F2 are isolated and that I could of left them with little and attacked G2 and gotten my objective done. That could of been the start of the Allies kicking butt and taking names. This war was tough and it was very very stressful and emotional. I’m glad at the end we got victories but I wish we could of started with those victories and kept them going threw the years.

World War 1 Simulation: Bulgaria Journal

World War One Simulation

Bulgaria, Period 1, 1913

Today was the first day of war. Germany and the rest of the Central Powers came out strong. I thought that since we were close to the Ottoman Empire and that one of our objectives was to ally with them that they would want to do the same for us but oh were we wrong! Germany tricked us into thinking that themselves and the Ottoman Empire were not going to take over us and that they were going to take over Russia. But actually they were going to take over us. And just like that we got taken over in the first 20 minutes of the game.

Bulgaria, Period 1, 1914

The today was very interesting. I thought that the Allies would be a lot stronger in this whole simulation but they weren’t. Great Britain tried to help liberate us but in reality all they did was take forever to even get to the Mediteratianian sea. They had way too many road blocks such as protecting their navies from the Germans and trying to help France when they were being attacked by Germany. Italy was the next country to be taken over and they were very upset with Germany. The Central powers had become very strong.

Bulgaria, Period 1, 1915

There was all kinds of war and alliances today. Germany and Austria-Hungary declared war on Belgium and took it over. France and Germany fought continuously  for the southern part of France and The Ottoman Empire took over Egypt. The Ottoman Empire’s strategy seemed to be that they liked to take over areas surrounding their empire rather than take a long shot like Germany and go for some random country. Russia tried taking over parts of Germany and Russia tried taking a part of the Ottoman Empire but was unsuccessful. They also lost their navy too.

Bulgaria, Period 1, 1916

Today Germany tried taking over a part of France and was unsuccessful. The United States also got involved by lending some of their troops to Great Britain when they sought out to regain Belgium back. Portugal also went to the Allies side and remain their for the rest of the day. Germany tried attacking Great Britain and France but lost because lack of troops. Russia also surrendered and they backed out of the war. I thought that was interesting because I figured that they would stay in the war because they are ruthless and are never scared and want battle. Tomorrow should be interesting. I’m curious if the Untied States will be more involved.

Bulgaria, Period 1, 1917

Today was a pretty still day. Their was just lots of mobilizing and stand still. With about 10 minutes left in the year, countries started attacking. France had to ask of Great Britain’s help when they again got attacked by Germany. Germany and Austria- Hungary were victorious and took another chunk of land from France. The countries that were in war (that could) used poisonous gas. I thought that was interesting because I didn’t really seem a make or break in the number of troops that they put into that battle or the casualties that happened.

Bulgaria, Period 1, 1918

Today was also a pretty still day. There was a lot of stand still which was surprising because I thought that there would be a lot more action on the last day. The United States and Great Britain and tried to help out France again because they wanted to re take their original territory back from the Central Powers! They were victorious and regained part of what was taken. Personally, I thought that the Allies would have been stronger and that the Central Powers would have been weaker and would have had some kind of road blocks along the way.

WW1 Lesson Plan Journal: Germany 4

Germany 4 Year 1913
As Germany we have realized that we aren’t going to win the Navel War so we decided to attack first move with our Navy to Great Britain. We decided that our key is to take out Russia so we can focus the fight on just one side

Germany 4 Year 1914
We took out some of the British Navy and then we started biting away from Russia and took all the way up to R1. France didn’t attack us at all which is perfect. We still have about 3.500 troops that can be used. We finished the day by taking over majority of Russia and tomorrow we are going to be getting more troops.

Germany 4 Year 1915
Russia surrendered so that is a huge plus we don’t have to worry about anything coming from that side. They can’t mobilize which saves us from like 5,000 troops. We are slowly going to start attacking France at this point, as well as taking out Romania, Greece, and Serbia. I tried convincing Belgium to let me send troops through there country but he refused so I am forced to start hacking away at Belgium now.

Germany 4 Year 1916
This point in the war its starting to get crazy with people coming out saying they are part of the allies. We have just been saying that we are going to destroy anything that isn’t part of the central powers. We have started to build up our army for the last few days when we are going to take out Italy and France.

Germany 4 Year 1917
Today I didn’t make it to school, but I was on chat with Bo and we had the strategy to just lay back and if Italy and France wants to get aggressive then we would get the defense bonus. Without me there I didn’t want the central powers to get to aggressive with out the main head honcho me. I told Bo to make sure the U-Boats were in the same ocean as the G.B. navy. He failed. We also thought they would start to attack in the southern part of the Ottoman Empire. So we started to rotate troops down there.

Germany 4 Year 1918
Today is the last day so we are going on the offense on france and Italy. I think that If me and Bo start to hack away with the first move then we will win even if Jacob attacks down in the southern part of the map. We started off by taking out Italy and then we were going to go after France. We finished the day off by having majority of the map and I would say that we won the war.

WW1 Lesson Plan Journal: France 4


France 4 1913-

This is Day 1 and France became
alliances with Belgium. Russia is at war. France became mobilized.
France also became alliances with Italy and Serbia. My plan is to
take over my original land and take over Germany. Since I have Italy,
Belgium, and Serbia I can have the surrounding countries around

France 4 1914-

This is Day 2 and France has made the
Serbia Alliance Public. I sent 150 Navy Troops into Montenegro.
Montenegro is victorious and keeps their land. Since I didn’t have a
turn today I want to move troops into G2 of Germany. I want to move
600 troops there and take it over. Also I Want to send my Navy of-
379 into French North Africa. I talked to Great Britain and he is
going to send some troops into Libya so the Central Powers don’t take
it over.

France 4 1915-

This is Day 3 and I have 500 troops
into F3 and 500 into F2 leaving 4,397 troops in F1. I moved navy by
Belgium sent 1500 troops to Belgium. Belgium is now allies with
France and Great Britain. My overall plan is to take over G2 land.
That would get my objective of taking over a certain part of land in
the G2 spot.

France 4 1916-

This is Day 4 and France really didn

WW1 Lesson Plan Journal: Ottoman Empire 4

Ottoman Empire 4 1914
Today we made a “secret alliance with Russia. We are planning to tell Germany and Russia anyway because they’re our main alliance. Russia says that we can have R4 if we let them use the canal between our land. We are planning to use R4 to sneak and destroy their capitol if Germany can’t get to it from R2. They think everything is cool between us. Let’s see how long that will last.

Ottoman Empire 4 1915
Russia is falling for the alliance. We got R4 and Germany got R3 and R2. Germany says they have enough troops to take Russia down so we got Bulgaria. Germany told us to take over Egypt to just so we have a buffer zone between our original territory. We are planning to get Romania and Greece whenever Germany tells us its a go. Russia’s “secret alliance with us is till going strong.

Ottoman Empire 4 1916
Russia tried attacking Germany and fell into a civil war. Germany tried allying with Belgium, but they wouldn’t agree. So Germany is planning to take them over. Great Britain was starting to move troops down so we decided to move troops into Egypt just to make sure no one can attack us there. Tomorrow we are going to take over Greece while Germany takes over Romania. Hopefully we get it. If we do a few more objectives get crossed off our list.

Ottoman Empire 4 1917
The United States joined the fight today. Great Britain, France and the United States all moved troops down the the French North Africa. I don’t know what there doing, but we are moving troops into Egypt just in case. Germany says there going to help out and move some troops into our capitol just to be safe.

Ottoman Empire 4 1918
This year was a break. Great Britain, France, and the United States  just moved troops down to French North Africa and Libya. We are stocking up in Egypt just incase they try to attack us by land. I think we should leave troops in the capitol but my president or my allies don’t think so. Tomorrow we plan to see what the Allies are going to try and take over. Russia’s “secret alliance apparently is still going strong. I wonder if they have any idea that we are telling Germany and Austria-Hungary everything.

Ottoman Empire 1919
Great Britain, France, and The United States did attack our capitol. Russia was mad because they thought that the deal was that we give them O1 if we get R4. We told them it wasn’t a deal and they still made the alliance with us. I guess they just didn’t pay attention. Anyway we won with 19 people left in our capitol with a few of Germany and Austria-Hungary troops left too. We decided to use our troops in Egypt and attack Libya. We lost by a ton, but we didn’t really care.

WW1 Lesson Plan Journal: Ottoman Empire 4

WW1 Simulation
Ottoman Empire 4 1913
Today, we became allies with Austria-Hungry. Austria-Hungry is allies with Germany who is our allies with us. Our plan is to help Austria-Hungry in their battle with Greece and Serbia because it would be a win-win situation for us. He needs revenge for the  killing of their country’s heir and we need their land.
We are honoring our alliance with Germany by taking part in their plan to take over all Russia. The Prime Minister and I have made an alliance with Russia, but it will soon be betrayed by us. We have allowed them assess to our straight but in return, we get a part of Russia’s land. Because the Central Powers have the first move, we will move into Russia’s land that was given to us without conflict and later my allies, Germany and Austria-Hungry  and I, will attack and take over Russia’s capital.
Bulgaria has tried to because allies with all the Central Powers but I have not agreed, I did not say yes to this, Bulgaria does not know that we plan to take over their country. I know that Germany has signed an alliance with Bulgaria but I am confident in Germany to honor its alliance with us as we have honored the alliance with them.

Ottoman Empire 4 1914
Today, we really showed how loyal the Central Powers are to each. We all helped each other out and discussed our next moves. We did our part in the take over of Russia and took R4 with minimal force. Their president had accidentally put troops in R4 and could not take them out so we had to declare war and won the land. Germany and Austria-Hungry did their part and all that is left of Russia is R3 which, I believe Germany will attack and we, the Ottoman Empire, will gladly assist. We still are waiting for Germany to give us the peninsula that was once ours. I will soon write some sort of treaty to insure that we get our peninsula.
After we took Russia, Great Britain was on the move toward our strait. We took over Egypt and that left Great Britain with little choices to do anything.
We also do Bulgaria which was easy because they were neutral and no one helped them. We are getting very close to completing all of our objectives.

Ottoman Empire 4 1915
Today, the allies were smart and stalled. We could not take our turn to move our 500 of our troops to Bulgaria to attack Romania. At the end we were able to move our troops in and tomorrow we plan on attacking Romania. I believe we will be okay but if we need help, I am hoping that Austria-Hungry will help us.

Ottoman Empire 4 1916
Today, we took over Greece by sending troops from Bulgaria. Once we beat them, we sent part of our troops to Romania which was beat by Germany, who we are allies with. We then noticed that Great Britain’s navy was slowly making its way down us. We then moved troops from R2 into Egypt. We know that Germany and Austria-Hungry will defend us from the Allies. Everyone that was taken down by the Central Powers have taken the side of the Allies. I thought that because the Central Powers were so powerful, people would side with us but that is not true. No matter, we will defeat them all. I have also found out that gossip is a country’s best friend. I have found out some vital information such as one of America’s objectives is to attack Germany. We are allies with Germany and we will help them with all we can.

Ottoman Empire 4 1917
Today was all about movement. I was not attacked, nor did I attack. The U.S and British navies are slowly coming towards us. I think they will attack tomorrow. We moved our troops to O1, O2, O3, and Egypt. My Prime Minister told me to move the troops out of  Egypt to put into our country but the president of Austria-Hungry told me to put more in there. I agree with the president of Austria-Hungry. If they, for some reason, are able to take back Egypt, they will have less troops and we will still have the Ottoman Empire. Stalling is my best friend. Because of it, Great Britain and the U.S did not have time to declare war but they did move. We will defend our country. They will not get it without a fight.

Ottoman Empire 4 1918
I was worried because the British and U.S navy were getting close to O1, our capital, until my prime minister told me that they did not have any troops. Later on though, they did get troops on their navy and attacked our capital. We pulled in troops from O2 and Bulgaria. Our great allies, Germany and Austria-Hungry also helped us and together we defeated the British and Americans and won the war. We had nothing to lose, we had won the whole war, we had the majority of the land. We then tried to fight Great Britain and the U.S in Libia and we were defeated. It did not matter though, we still had all of our Ottoman Empire and they were severely injured by the attacks from Germany and Austria-Hungry. All the other countries throughout the war started allying with the Allies but the Central Powers ended up being the winners of the Great War.

WW1 Lesson Plan Journal: United States 4

WW1 Simulation

USA 4 1913
My strategy at this point is to just stay back and not get involved. We plan on staying neutral until something causing us to make alliances. I wouldn’t want to put that pressure on my people with our country just starting to develop. So I plan on staying neutral. Nothing has happened yet but I’m expecting something big is about to come.

USA 4 1914
There has beeb a lot of activity from the central powers taking over the allied countries. Right now no one has made a pass at that USA which is working in my favor. I have made a few helpful comments to Great Briton and France but haven’t completely made an alliance. I think that they both know that eventually I will side with them but right now its best that i stay neutral. So another day being neutral it is.

USA 4 1915
Today Russia was taken over. I believe this happened because they are the biggest country that touched the Ottoman Empire and Germany. Also they moved all their troops so one side which made it easy for them to conquer the others. Right now my strategy stays the same. Nothing has really happened that makes me think that I need to make allies but when the time comes I will. Im going to mobilize tomorrow in case something happens but I don’t plan on doing anything soon.

USA 4 1916
Things are starting to get heated. Great Britain and I have been talking a little because of all the war the central powers have been starting. I might have to ally with them in order to end all of this. The central powers are moving too quickly and we need to stop them. I don’t want to get involved too soon but I think my time is coming. We need to stop them and allying with France and Britain would be my best option. My strategy might be that I need to move into the war and ally with the allied nations.

USA 4 1917
After Great Britain intercepted the telegram from Germany to Mexico about starting war with the USA, I decided that it was time to ally. I allied with Great Britain and France. After moving my navy and the rest of my troops in Britain’s navy, we came to an agreement to attack the Ottoman Empire. We haven’t done it yet but it’s coming. We were being followed by Austria-Hungry’s U boats but we don’t think that they will get anything done. If things go as planned, the Ottoman empire will have the Central Powers move their troops so we can successfully take over part of Germany. Hopefully we can win this war.

USA 4 1918
Today was bad. We were able to out run Austria-Hungry’s u-boats so we attempted to attack the Ottoman Empire and lost. The Central powers moved and took over France. France and I were trying to attack Germany but before we were able to do it, they wiped out our armies. Im very disappointed in the way things turned out but the Allied powers just weren’t as aggressive as the Central powers. I feel that we would’ve had a better chance of winning if we started out aggressive instead of just waiting until the last few days.

WW1 Lesson Plan Journal: Italy 4

Italy 4 1913
I’m thinking that I will mobilize and get ready for war. I will also become alliances with Austria Hungary Im thinking that I won’t make a move to take over any country for a while. I’m going to retain my country and back up my alliances until I decide to make a move.

Italy 4 1914
I made secret alliances with the central powers which are Germany and the Ottoman Empire, but i’m waiting until 1915 until I mobilize. Even though I will mobilize, I will still remain neutral. The Ottoman Empire and Austria Hungary form an alliance.

Italy 4 1915
I mobilized 1,251 troops. I made a public known alliance. I formed alliances with the allies and turned on the central powers, which I’m not sure if it’s a good or bad thing. Now I have the fear of the Central Powers taking me over since they are so big and have taken over many countries already.

Italy 4 1916
Today I attempted to take South Tyrol from Austria-Hungary. That did not turn out too well since Germany had some troops in South Tyrol. Since Germany had a rating of ten, me trying to take over South Tyrol didn’t even make a dent in the Central Powers. It resulted in me just loosing troops, having less troops to defend Italy if someone tries to take it over.

Italy 4 1917
There has not been any wars so far made by the Alliances or the Central Powers. The allies have just been moving troops around and moving their navy. The Central powers have been spreading out their army and navy’s as well. It’s getting intense with moving the Uboats, Navy, and Army. Not for sure who is going to make the first move. Sounds like they’re waiting until tomorrow until they make a move. I think that I’m going to try and take over Trieste from Austria Hungary because Austria Hungary has the same rating as me and Germany is not in Trieste, they were moved out.

Italy 4 1918
I planned to try and take over A2 but before I got the chance to, Germany sent troops into I1 and I did not have enough troops to send into I1 without leaving  troops to protect I1. Both Central Powers and the Allies are moving their troops. The Central Powers are moving closer and closer down into Italy. Austria-Hungary moved troops down into I2 and I did not have enough troops so they took over I2. Germany attempted to take over F2 but then France brought some troops down from F1 and was victorious. Germany came back and brought more troops and took over F2. The Central Powers won.
